Book Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

 

The Healing Art of Storytelling
A Sacred Journey of Personal Discovery
Richard Stone
Hyperion 10/96 Paperback $12.95
ISBN: 0786881070


This book discusses how people tell stories to give personal shape, meaning, and purpose to their lives. The author, a professional storyteller and founder of StoryWork Institute, is convinced that this process of excavating one's personal history and sharing it with others is a healing art. Stone pinpoints ways individuals can unlock almost lost memories and dredge up important events from the past. By restorying our lives we can access tools for building self-esteem, learning from mistakes, affirming personal values, and celebrating the miracles of everyday life. Stone doesn't slight the practice of listening which is part and parcel of this sacred journey of personal discovery. The book ends with a thought-provoking questionnaire designed to spur a spoken autobiography.
